has coined romnesia. he should keep using it. sometimes the republicans have had such great success with turns of phrase such as swift voting, the quick one off to think a certain way about a certain person. romnesia is the perfect way to describe exactly what afflicts mitt romney when it comes to his own record. day we have an interesting round of good news for the president which is he has gotten endorsements today from the denver post, the tampa bay times. the salt city tribune. yes, the salt city tribune, an utah paper endorsing obama. that's good for him. he seems to have stopped the bleeding according to a lot of polls, however he has got to go into the next debate, the next set of questions and smile. we need a president who sat there and smile, we need the president reassure us. when we see him smile everybody is happy. he has a number of things he needs to talk about. the supreme court, climate change, iraq and the fiscal cliff. he has not talked at all about the fiscal cliff. it is coming. whoever is elected will be totally responsible for that. he went on "the daily thoug

this debate this evening. thank you to lynn university for welcoming us here. and mr. president it is nice to be with you again. this is obviously an area of great concern to the entire world and to america in particular, which is to see a complete change in the structure and the environment in the middle east with the arab spring came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation an opportunity for greater participation on the part of women in public life and economic life in the middle east but instead we have seen in nation after nation a number of disturbing events. of course we see in syria 30,000 civilians having been killed by the military there. we see in libya an attack apparently i think we know how by terrorists of some kind. four people dead. our hearts and minds to them mally has been taken over. we have in egypt a muslim brotherhood. and of course the greatest threat of all is iran. and we're going to have to recognize is do as the president has done. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden, and going after al chi da. bu

speech of the democratic convention bar none. john fugelsang who's satiric commentary leaves us laughing every night. and you're going to explain how we use social media tonight. >> john: indeed. and we're here debating from my hometown, the great isle of long. current tv is where we want you to be on tv with us. if you look right below, you'll see our brand new and improved twitter screen. throughout the debate you will be able to watch not just the candidates but the feedback of your fellow americans, different media outlets, all of the shows here on current, including cenk who is with his brand new baby on the west coast. and if you want to hear what people are heckling to the candidates throughout the entire evening. this is the place to be. if you include the hashtag in your tweet, you will see your tweet come up on the screen so try to have an attractive profile picture tonight. the steaks are high. so you can be part of this great electronic family. >> jennifer: i want to start our conversation by asking you guys a question. does barack obama go after
us. >> a pleasure, eliot. >> eliot: let's start with the important question. what do we know about al-qaeda's attacks in the consulate in ben gassy. >> this was a well planned attack. somebody had been casing the consulate in benghazi for some time. whether they acted on the spur of the moment or if they had direction in outside of libya remains to be scene. >> eliot: the difficulty given the uncertainty and it's impossible to get your arms around all the facts very quickly. but the difficulty then is how do we then move in our evolving relationship with the new libyan government to control al-qaeda's presence and respect their sovereignty. where do we go in this evolving arab spring, in libya in particular. >> a lot of this takes time. building up a strong system of government, institution of government libya in particular build gadhafi never wanted an institution that would rival his him. every political faction within libya has weapons and obviously at least one of them or more used them on the consulate a few weeks ago. >> eliot: what i hear you saying, and what i think is critic
>> jennifer: well, thank you all for joining us here on "the war room." 33 days until the election. get out register and vote if you're an early voting state. we'll see you tomorrow night. >> eliot: good evening. i'm eliot spitzer and this is "viewpoint." the first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign is over. president obama could be forgiven if he wanted to press the reset button. the candidates were all smiles as they came out shook hands in denver last night but when the 90-minute debate was over, mitt romney was the only contender with a reason to keep smiling. according to a cnn poll, 67% of adults thought romney won the debate compared to just 25% who picked the president. 46% of undecided voters in a cbs poll gave the win to romney to just 22% for mr. obama. nearly a third of the undecideds were undecided. romney's positive rating rose above 50% for the first time in this campaign in a reuters poll. the president's ratings stayed unchanged at 56%. romney stayed on the attack even though his position

are going to try to use this as a wedge issue while the republicans try to use benghazi as their wedge issue. i suspect both topics may go away as of november 7th. >> hopefully not. i think that the president did a fantastic job last night on jay leno saying that he basically said that male politicians should not be making decisions for women. that's what a lot of women feel. >> john: such a pleasure to have you both here. does colin powell's endorsement mean anything? >> not as much as it did in 2008. he used to be the war hero when he was with bush. now he endorses obama. it is all colin powell. >> i think if he endorsed romney, that would be a big irstory -- bigger story. >> john: i think you're right. tina depue and eric boehlert, two of the smartest people i know. thank you both so much for your time tonight. a programming note, governor eliot spitzer will be back tomorrow live from l.a. where he's also appearing on real time with bill maher. catch him tomorrow night at 10:00 p.m. eastern on hbo. coming up toni

is currently under siege. the right to organize is seen as a threat to the most powerful among us. we should not forget the difference between a game changing moment and a game changer. >> jennifer: good news today out of pennsylvania. the judge has blocked the state's tough voter i.d. law meaning it will not go into effect this election. >> we've come like moses today not to say let my people go but we've come today to say let my people vote. >> jennifer: let my people vote. you'll remember this was the law that would have disenfranchised as many as 750,000 people in pennsylvania. mostly young people and minorities and a top republican lawmaker had boasted in june that it would give the state to mitt romney. pennsylvania's actually part of a wider trend. measures to restrict voting are being stymied in courts in wisconsin, texas florida arizona, south carolina, and ohio. stymied by the court system. but the not so good news is that these laws are not going away. the pennsylvania law has just been suspended not stru
: all right. everybody thanks for joining us in "the war room." 32 days until the election and we will see you here on monday. >> eliot: good evening, i'm eliot spitzer, and this is "viewpoint." the september jobs report is in. and the numbers are better than expected. way better. the unemployment rate below 8% for the first time since january 2009. it's good news for president obama, after his underwhelming performance in wednesday' debate. and bad news for mitt romney, and his conspiracy-minded supporters on the republican right. more on that in a moment. according to the bureau of labor statistics, unemployment dropped to 7.8% last month down .3 of a percent since august. employers added 114,000 new jobs. including 104 in the private sector and 10,000 in the public sector which had seen months of steady decline. in july's number revised to 181,000 with an additional 40,000 new jobs. president obama shared the news with a cheering crowd at a campaign appearance in fairfax virginia. >> obama: this morning we found out that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest level sinc
congressional district. congressman, thank you as always for joining us. >> thank you. >> eliot: so how did last night's debate affect florida voters? it is still listed, florida that is, in a tossup category. although it seems to be leaning toward mitt romney right now. do you think the president made any ground up last night? >> i think he certainly did. look, he seemed like the president. he seemed like the president of the united states in full grasp of the fact. mitt romney seemed like somebody with 15 minutes of material trying to spread it out over 45 minutes. he seem to have this wonderful gift to string together words that mean nothing. i wrote down a couple of them as i was watching with my family. first answer, we need a comprehensive and robust strategy and we need to coordinate with our friends to address the rising tide of tumult. what does that mean? how can somebody who claim to be the president and give out vacuous nonsense like that? >> eliot: let me ask you this. there's no question that over the last

to try and make sure we don't talk about climate change. they've been dropping the elbow on us for a long time. hurricane sandy came around and dropped the elbow on them and so the koch brothers and all those climate change deniers, you can buy those research and think tanks and buy the politicians but what you cannot buy is reality, and that's what hit us this week unfortunately because of your actions. now we've got a whole 'nother hour of the "young turks" coming up for you so stay right here. >> the tree is uprooted. >> we all started panicking. then the water started to come in. >> rescues started happening and these trucks started coming in. i guess we're seeing more people stepping out of this national guard truck. and people who have been rescued. >> some of the area's best known board walks have been wrecked destroyed. >> looking at more de station. we have a good look here at what's taken place on the jersey shore. >> the best way of traversing the roadways right now. >> sharks swimming in the water around their homes! they weren't about t

" on current tv. welcome, welcome to the program! thank you for joining us. boy, i gotta tell you you know, we're going to focus this morning on last night's debate. we saw two very different men take the stage in boca raton florida. one, president of the united states the other wants to be president of the united states. one knew what he was talking about on foreign policy. the other didn't have a clue! but one thing for sure on that stage last night we only saw one commander in chief. yes, obama wins round three of the presidential debate hands down. we'll get into it every which way here for the next three hours but first today's latest, the current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. if you are asking yourself who won last night's presidential debate you probably weren't watching. president obama came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided vote

matter, and use it as a symbol to lay the basis for a broader indictment. i don't think it's justified and i don't think you'll be able to do it, but he certainly is going to try. now his lack of experience in these issues has already shown up. you know he declared that russia was our number one foreign policy opponent causing former secretary of state and chairman of the joint chief colin powell to say come on, mitt think. i thought that was very hurtful to governor romney. >> jennifer: i put bets on the table that colin powell endorses some time tonight or in the next few days. >> eliot: it sounds like you have inside information. >> jennifer: no, i'm just guessing. >> eliot: i want to come back to a point that cenk made earlier about what the president can do, jennifer, you mentioned this as well. the president can effectively ask mitt romney what would you do differently. it's a powerful question to prove that he does not have an arrest kickarticulatetive foreign policy, and then he could create a wedge saying, i would do a b c, and d. when we come back, michael shure with the elec

, fred hochberg, joins us later but first, new york columnist nicholas kristof. >> gavin: you summed up expectations of obama first term. your score card was pretty favorable except for one exception, you rated president obama in communication an "f." what is communicating selling the agenda? selling the success? >> yes and it's kind of astonishing that a president that had such oratorycal skills and such a fantastic writer has such difficulties crafting bumper stickerrers. if you think about the healthcare debate i don't think he came up with a good bumper sticker to sell it with a good message. he still gave some good speeches but there aren't really that many in his first term. it's always said that candidates, when you're running for office you speak in poetry. then you governor in prose. but the--boom's prose while governing has really felt like latin. i think maybe he has not appreciated until recently the power of bully pulpit. it's not just about announcements but winning over the public. i think over the past few years he has risen to the responsibility. >> gavin: interesting.
